COVID-19 has revealed the unfathomable hardships many people in Melbourne are facing today. People in severe poverty, kids living on the streets, violence against women, addictions and mental illness.
Feeling powerless to effect any change, I’ve decided to auction one of my artworks each Wednesday on my Facebook page throughout August.
Art-19 auctions will see all proceeds going to Berry Street to support children, young people and families in crisis. The economic damage of this health crisis will be long-lasting and I truly believe this is the time for Melbournians to come together with generosity of heart and spirit to financially support the most vulnerable in our community.
Please help me to help those in need. Best wishes Gemma
The 4 Artwork auctions held in August raised $920 for Berry Street.
Being just under my goal of $1,000 I have decided to extend the fundraising for Berry Street. 25% of all artworks sold via my website will be donated to Berry Street.
